It turns out that cork is not only useful for preserving your favorite bottle of wine, it makes great flooring, providing a resilient and eco-friendly finish to your basement, or any space.
Not only are no trees cut down to produce the material, but the flooring is made from the scraps that are leftover from producing bottle stoppers. Cork flooring is available in tiles or panels, and comes in many textures and patterns.
